It’s a known fact that Stockholm nightclubs close at 3 am (at 5 am in rare occasions), bars – at 1 am. So what to do if you still need a drink and your friends are not ready to part? Try Lilla bar on the ground floor of Scandic Malmen Hotel in Södermalm. It is open till 2 am even on weekdays. Surprisingly it attracts more Swedes than tourists. Plus sides: Scandinavian minimalism in the interior, plenty of space for dancing, and a great selection of beer (American PBR is five times more expensive than in the US, so you might want to try affordable Anchor Steam or Dutch beer brands).
Follow Lilla on Facebook for upcoming concerts. Excellent musical bands like Mac DeMarco and El-P perform at the bar from time to time. All concerts are free.
